Nurse Manager, 4th floor

Located on the fourth floor of the cancer hospital, this 25-bed inpatient unit specializes in the care of hematology and oncology patients who are admitted for chemotherapy, biotherapy, and targeted therapies to treat cancer and its often negative side effects. Telemetry is available for monitoring patients who would otherwise require transfer to a cardiology unit.

The dedicated Medical Oncology Unit nurses are skilled in dealing with symptom management, whether due to the side effects of treatment or the disease itself. Understanding that patient and family involvement are essential components of holistic care, nurses provide patient/family education and exceptional support during each individual’s unique cancer journey.
